Upcoming Scholarship Deadlines

The Represent Tech Scholarship is awarded four times per year.

To be considered, first apply for and enroll in the bootcamp program. Once enrolled, you'll be invited to complete your Represent Tech scholarship application based on eligibility. The final step of the application process is to submit a virtually recorded interview for the scholarship team to review. Final selections will be announced three weeks post application deadline.

Maybe just a few more questions.

Potential students often want to know more.

  • How do I apply for the scholarship?

    You can let us know you’re interested in a scholarship at any time by filling out the interest form. To submit an official application you must enroll in Tech Elevator. After enrollment, you will receive access to the application form along with post-enrollment financing information and other enrolled student resources. You must enroll as a student and apply for the scholarship by the Scholarship application deadline for the cohort you plan to attend in order to be considered. The business day following the deadline you’ll be invited to complete an asynchronous interview if your application meets the scholarship eligibility criteria.

  • What is an asynchronous interview?

    The asynchronous interview uses a platform called Kira Talent to allow you to interview on your own time. We’ve recorded ourselves asking interview questions, and you will video record yourself as you answer. You will receive the invitation to interview the business day following the application deadline, and you’ll have about 6 days to complete it. (Exact time between deadlines may be affected by holidays.) You can interview at a time that is most convenient for you, so long as you do so by the deadline you are given in your interview invitation.

  • How do I know if I’m eligible to apply for a scholarship?

    Carefully review the eligibility criteria provided in the scholarship terms and conditions. Final eligibility is based on the self identification you provide on the scholarship form.

  • When will I be notified about the scholarship results?

    Scholarship results will be provided roughly 2.5 weeks after the application deadline. The specific week when you can expect to receive an update on your award status is published alongside each deadline.

  • How likely am I to receive a scholarship?

    We have a limited number of scholarships to award, and it is a competitive selection process. Students who apply for a scholarship should also make other tuition financing arrangements while waiting for the scholarship selection results.

  • I enrolled after the scholarship deadline. What if I want to be considered for the scholarship?

    Unfortunately, if you enroll in a Tech Elevator course after the associated Represent Tech application deadline has passed, you will not be able to apply for a scholarship. Our admissions team can work with you to explore other financing or grant options that are right for you.

  • What if I’m not awarded the scholarship?

    If you are not awarded a scholarship, you will need to make other arrangements to pay for your tuition. (Get more information or financing or grant options.) The scholarship decision does not affect your enrollment status.

  • The scholarship does not cover 100% of tuition. How do I pay for the rest of my tuition?

    Scholarship recipients have access to the same financing or grant options as all other students. If you expect to need to leverage any of those options to pay for your tuition (regardless of whether or not you receive a scholarship), you should begin applying as soon as possible upon enrollment. Your financing amount can be adjusted if you are awarded a scholarship.

“Tech Elevator was very difficult but it showed me what I could do. I didn’t think I was capable of learning so much and doing so much in such a short time. It was character building. You have to learn on the fly. You have to get used to being comfortable in uncomfortable situations and being confident that you will learn quickly.”
